Pattern Description from A Fine Fleece: “this cardigan features two traditional stitches worked in separate areas and places so that the shaping doesn’t interfere very much with the lace patterns. A wide band at the lower edge features the classic razor shell pattern, which provides a feminine scalloped edge. The lace panels on the body are openwork version of the cables. The yarns used are DK weight but I chose to work them at a softened gauge to allow the lace to open up.”
